A friend of mine wants to buy a Scamsung phone in the next few days.
He's highly advanced techincal person and I try and try to presuade him not to buy this overpriced junk!

Today I made a quick comparison, what you can get for EXACT SAME amount of money at a carrier he wants to go to:
- S3 mini: 480p screen, 5MP+720p camera, 1GHz dual-core, 1500mAh battery
- Lava Xolo: 600p screen, 8MP+1080p camera, 1.6GHz Intel Atom x86 CPU, 1460mAh battery
- Xperia S: 720p screen, 12MP+1080p camera, 1.5GHz dual-core, 1750mAh battery
- Optimus 4X HD: 720p screen, 8MP+1080p camera, 1.5GHz quad-core Tega 3, 2150mAh battery
I dropped out some functions like OS version, Bluetooth, horrible LG support, RAM (it's the same on all handsets).

I see that the minute Scamsung saw that they got the most sales and they've become the most desirable brand, they jacked up the prices and started to be more like Apple.
This makes me sad! :(

Samsungs phones only 2 of the 37 phones they released sold effectively. The rest are flops. Plastic for the wing. Samsung is king of plastic production.
